^ NO

Please, people from South East Asia, do not post photos of ugly new mosques! Why does this keep happening, I'm so confused.

This is a thread about pre-20th century stuff, do you get it?

Bab El Mrissa | Salé

Bab el-Mrissa (ou notamment Bab Lamrissa), appelée aussi Bab Mellah, est une porte fortifiée datant du xiiie siècle (1260) et se situant à Salé, au Maroc. Ancienne porte maritime, elle fait partie des principales portes de l'actuelle enceinte de la médina de Salé et en est la plus imposante.

Flickr 上 Mr.EnjoyIstambul: Hagia Sophia

The magnificent interior of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey.
The 'Shrine of the Holy Wisdom of God' started ou as a Basilica (537), then a Mosque(1453) and after having being secularized (1931) is now a museum.
A masterpiece of Byzantine Architecture, its beautiful and lavish decoration is only surpassed by the huge dome and enormous size, having remained the largest Cathedral for 1000 years.
Upon completion, The Emperor Justinian I is said to have proclaimed: "Solomon, I have outdone thee!"

Flickr 上 frahmanzAn evening at Putra Mosque
The Putra Mosque, or Masjid Putra in Malay language, is the principal mosque of Putrajaya, Malaysia. Construction of the mosque began in 1997 and was completed two years later. It is located next to Perdana Putra which houses the Malaysian Prime Minister's office and man-made Putrajaya Lake. In front of the mosque is a large square with flagpoles flying Malaysian states' flags.
